The Wicked and Foolish Forfeit the Comfort They Might Receive From the Promises of God


“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”
–Numbers 23:19

The wicked and the foolish (many times, one in the same) do NOT believe the Word of God.

“He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.”
–John 8:47

God takes notice of this. Actually, NOTHING escapes the notice of God.


“God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.”
–Psalm 7:11

Or, as Job puts it rather succinctly.

“Is not destruction to the wicked? and a strange punishment to the workers of iniquity?”
–Job 31:3

OF COURSE, there is a punishment to be had for the disbelief of God’s Word. That some disbelieve is to be expected, according to God’s Word.

“He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”
–Mark 16:16

HOWEVER, one point which is NOT belaborded: the wicked, the evil and the foolish FORFEIT the comfort they might otherwise receive from the promises of God.

And to what end?

They exchange that comfort for (mostly) the chance to rebel: to shake their tiny fists at God and blaspheme Him.

“An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.”
–Proverbs 17:11

Is this a good trade?

No, it is not, BUT–since the wicked do NOT believe the Word of God– they have NOTHING on which to evaluate their mistake.

“The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.”
–Psalm 145:20

Because the wicked and foolish do NOT experience the merciful comforts of God’s promises, they claim these benefits do NOT exist–even for the righteous man.

BUT, these comforts DO exist–for the righteous, NOT the wicked, the evil or the foolish.

“For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.”
–Psalm 5:12

Will the reader forego the comforts of God’s promises because he does NOT believe in them?

How short-sighted!

How unnecessary!

How truly tragic!

“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
–Revelation 21:8

WILL the reader forfeit the comfort he might readily receive IF he believed in such comfort?

It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
